    I'm 49 y.o. male, married w/ 4 boys mostly grown ,and getting back into bikes in general. Came across this forum and love it.
    I have several bikes that would work for motor, none with suspension. I'll probably lurk a while and try to get up to speed. Leaning towards a rear mount. I work at a metal fab. place so that should help. Would like opinions on the difficulty/ advantages of inside vs. outside drive (kits)
    Would love to hear from anyone in the area working with MB's. I'm 240# so will probably build or purchase a heavier built wheel.
    Anyway- I'll read the newbie stickys etc. There seem to be many more options than I had imagined on how to go about motorizing.
    Hope this whole thing turns in to a movement- I think it's great!
